Please can I remind parents that, before school, the children in Year 1 and Year 4 wait on the front playground and that the children in Year 2, Year 3, Year 5 and Year 6 wait on the top playground. These playgrounds are supervised by school staff from 8.40am. Reception children wait in the area behind the enclosed reception playground. Reception doors open from 8.45am. All other children should be already in their designated playground by 8.50am, when the whistle will blow for them to line up. Punctuality is very important because as of next week, they will all be going straight into daily “Memory Maths” sessions to start the day and so lateness will significantly impact on their learning.
Teachers will be out at 8.50am and are keen to chat to any parents who have a concern or wish to impart information regarding their child. Can we please ask though that if you do not wish to speak to the teacher that you depart the playground reasonably promptly to allow the teachers to line up their children and ensure that they are ready to enter school calmly.
